Cherries are just little bite size wonders of goodness.  They have been listed among the top superfoods for their antioxidant properties due to their high level of anthocyanins.  They are a great source of phytosterols which help lower the levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) and reduce the risk of heart disease.  Sadly they are high in sugar though.  A handful of cherries could contain as much as 20g of sugar!
